David and members of her gang were rounded up by the police at the Abattoir area of Agege, for robbery, cultism and rape, and were paraded at the Command headquarters in Ikeja.

While confessing, the native of Cross River State, said:

“I smoke between five and six wraps of Indian Hemp daily. I don’t take cocaine, but I take Chinese cigarette, if I cannot get Indian hemp.

I am not a thief, I don’t rob. It was one of the boys that we sleep together, who stole a phone at Computer Village. I am not a prostitute but I have been smoking weed since I was 11 years old.

I was brought to Lagos by one of my relations but she later abandoned me and I had to survive by joining the boys."
